[08:39] <edmoore> how's it gooing?
[08:40] <jcoxon> not bad thanks
[08:40] <jcoxon> found out how to fix the problem i was having with my gumstix
[08:40] <edmoore> what was that?
[08:40] <jcoxon> seems some of the lines are routed differently on the newer versions
[08:40] <jcoxon> and so the serial port actually appears at some different pins
[08:41] <edmoore> ever helpful
[08:42] <jcoxon> sent an email to the gumstix mailing list saying that their documentation is really falling apart
[08:42] <jcoxon> that should have been documentated, instead i found it by trawling the mailing list
[08:42] <edmoore> I noticed your unofficial gumstix documentation
[08:44] <jcoxon> yeah, but i now think there needs to be a community wide effort
[08:44] <jcoxon> ratehr than me
[08:44] <edmoore> unofficialgumstix.com
[08:44] <edmoore> a wiki

[12:14] <edmoore> Hiena: I agree
[12:14] <edmoore> this is why god invented epoxy
[12:15] <Hiena> Yeah, but the epoxy is useless over 80C and now i need at least 160C for the cracking process.
[12:15] <edmoore> Gun Gum!
[12:16] <edmoore> designed to seal holes in car exhaust
[12:16] <edmoore> very high temp sealant

[12:32] <jcoxon> still bored?

[12:33] <edmoore> lunch soon though
[12:33] <Hiena> Well, the hylomar was busted too. Anyhow, the process is working, so what i need just a better equipment.
[12:35] <jcoxon> i'm going to the cinema this afternoon
[12:37] <Hiena> What will you watching?
[12:38] <jcoxon> i think Iron MAn
[12:39] <edmoore> oh cool
[12:39] <Hiena> Good movie. I recommend it.
[12:40] <jcoxon> my flat mate is coming with me, should be cool
[12:41] <Hiena> At least they followed the original comics and put a correct enemy, and not some colorfull fool.
[12:42] <jcoxon> hehe, superhero badguys are always amusing
[12:42] <jcoxon> but yeah i like serious superhero films
[12:42] <jcoxon> especially after batman begins
[12:43] <Hiena> I rather use the word of lame. I really don't likes the caped heros.
[12:43] <jcoxon> hehe
[12:45] <Hiena> Did the comics writer ever considered, how useless a cape in a fight?
[12:47] <edmoore> it's useful in jumping off a building
[12:47] <edmoore> apparently
[12:47] <edmoore> right, lunch time
[12:47] <edmoore> bbl
